Tough to win on 50% of an effort.
Ryan Munce stopped 31 of 34 shots faced in the loss.

And we don't have to burn the new white jerseys after all!
Johan Holmqvist was sparkling stopping 40 of 41 shots faced for the win. Holmer is streaky, and maybe it's time for a hot streak. Tampa gets Washington on Saturday and a chance to get back to .500.
Carolina 2:04, Ray Whitney 9 (Matt Cullen, Frantisek Kaberle)
Tampa Bay 13:36, Vaclav Prospal 10 (power play) (Martin St. Louis, Vincent Lecavalier)
Both Lightning prospects registered a goal in the game, with Crowley scoring a first period power play goal to tie the game at one, and Fadden scoring shorthanded into an empty net to give the game its final score. Fadden also assisted on the gameâ€™s opening goal, on the power play. Lethbridge has earned at least a point in its last 7 games.
Prince George Cougars 4 @ Vancouver Giants 7
C/W Dana Tyrell, PG: 0-1-1, +2, 4 PIM (hooking, checking-from-behind)
Prince George hung with the CHLâ€™s eighth ranked team until the Giants blew a tie game open in the third period with three straight goals and four total. Tyrellâ€™s assist came on the power play.
Red Deer Rebels 2 @ Kelowna Rockets 3
G Torrie Jung, KEL: Did Not Play.
Kristofer Westblom stopped 21 of 23 for Kelowna in his fourth straight start. It appears the only action Jung will get from hereon out will be spot duty and back-to-back sets.
Ryan Craig is back!
Jonathan Boutin stopped 36 of 39 shots faced in the win. The more work he gets, the better he plays.
HER Motzko, (2) (McNeill, Pollock), 12:05 (PP)
NOR Lampman, (2) (Jones, Wanvig), 13:52 (PP)
NOR Milley, (2) (Stewart), 14:32
HER Motzko, (3) (Robitaille, Pokulok), 10:36
HER Motzko, (4) (Klepis, Potulny), 14:24 (PP)

NOR Craig, (1) (Lawrence, Schneider), 11:23
NOR Rooneem, (1) (Craig, Jancevski), 18:52 (PP) [/b]
Craig and Norm Milley were the first and third stars of the game, respectively.
Justin Keller finally breaks through for his first goal of the season. At least 19 more of those would be nice.
